Cami Hight Funeral Director
I grew up in the small town of Hillsboro, but moved to Mansfield in 2003. I graduated from Mansfield High School in 2004. I live in Whitney with my son Keighan. I love to spend time with my family, especially in the summer. If we aren't at a baseball tournament, we love to go to the lake where we enjoy skiing, knee boarding, and just being on the water.
I received my Bachelors of Science in Education from Texas Wesleyan University in 2010. After lots of praying and seeking God's will for my life, I enrolled in the Mortuary Science program at Amarillo College and began my career in funeral industry and am so very happy to have found my passion. I love working with families and helping them celebrate the life of their loved one.
I am excited about becoming a part of Lucas & Blessing Funeral Home.
Bill Conley Funeral Director
I have been licensed in funeral service for fifty years. Serving families in their time of need is still very important to me.
My wife of 49 years and I have one adult daughter and two wonderful grandchildren. I’m a member of St. Ann Catholic Church.

Juan Merlan Family Service Counselor
Juan Merlan joined the Funeral Industry in the summer of 2018 after discovering the value of making funeral pre-arrangements ahead of time, after the passing of his grandparents.
Since then, Juan has took the initiative to study and earn his PreNeed License issued by the Texas Department of Banking so that he can become a Family Service Counselor.
Having a servant's heart, Juan volunteers at his home town church in Ranger, TX as the drummer for the Woodbridge Church Worship Band, and offers drum lessons for young upcoming drummers.
"Every family deserves an intentional plan in place, so that they can have a healthy grief experience, and begin healing on that difficult day." - Juan Merlan
Janis Boterf Administrative Assistant/Visitation Attendant
My name is Janis Boterf. I have been working for Lucas and Blessing since December 2015. I enjoy and respect my co-workers here and am glad to be a part of this profession. I have been a resident of Burleson since 1997. I retired from Huguley Hospital where I was a telephone operator in 2013. I have also worked for Burleson and Crowley Independent School Districts as a substitute teacher and teacher's aide. I am a native of Ft.Worth but have lived in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Mississippi. After my husband retired we spent 2 years traveling around the States in an RV and are now happy to be back in Burleson.
Jean Crawford Visitation Attendant
I have enjoyed helping as needed at Lucas and Blessing Funeral Home for about 2 years. I enjoy meeting and greeting our visitors as communication was a necessary skill working forty years as a Registered Nurse in psych/mental health. I grew up in Fort Dodge, Iowa, then attended Methodist Kahler School of Nursing in Rochester, Minnesota. We moved our young family to Texas in the 70's to escape the cold winters! I have four great children, an active family now including 8 grandchildren. I have been involved in many volunteer projects; including Red Cross Disaster Nursing, Court Appointed Child Advocate, Music for Civic Events as well as First Christian Church on Sunday mornings. I have played piano all my life and everyone knows "I never met a piano I didn't Love"!
